We went here for brunch. There are endless choices from salads, to meats, to pasta, to egg dishes. The pastries and desserts are also delicious. If you sit on the patio, the view can’t be beat!

Fantastic food and service were enjoyed by our family at the Mission Ranch Restaurant. While waiting for our table we were able to stroll along the lovely property and take in the gorgeous views.
